Following the previous successful weekends another Crusade was arranged, this time to the City of Cambridge.
The Provincial Prior R.E. Gary Read was once again joined by a party of Knights, their Ladies and guests on a weekend at the Holiday Inn Hotel, Impington, Cambridge from the 27th – 29th April.
After travelling from many parts of Staffordshire and Shropshire, the guests met on the first evening in the Restaurant and were treated to a superb meal. Everyone enjoyed the first evening meeting new and old friends planning the weekend ahead and hoping that the weather was going to improve.
On Saturday following breakfast many ventured into Cambridge and enjoyed the day at leisure. A few of the group went to the spectacular Kings College Chapel and also the Fitzwilliam Museum and they enjoyed the very interesting experience.
A few guests went on the Open Air Bus for an interesting and informative tour of the City.
Cambridge proved to be an interesting and enjoyable City to visit.
On the Saturday night everyone enjoyed another superb meal in the Restaurant. During the evening the guests were entertained by members of the party, namely Adrian Yearsley Richard Stimpson, Gaynor Goddard, and of course the talented Dudley Ray who accompanied the singers.
A surprise of the evening was Adrian Yearsley inviting his daughter Lauren, who is studying Performing Arts in London, to sing a duet with him and they were given a rapturous applause.
To commemorate 100 years after the First World War, there was also a Sing along headed by Ray Haynes and Phil Morris, singing songs from the War Era, this proved to be very popular and everyone was in good voice.
There was a lot of hilarity and everyone had a good time.
On the Sunday morning following a leisurely breakfast, everyone made their way back home and despite the inclement weather everyone said that the weekend proved a great success with plans for another weekend in 2019.
The Prov. Prior has decided on the City of Manchester on 10th – 12th May 2019
